70 Years of String Band Excellence
May 14th, 1946 in the Grays Ferry kitchen of Samuel G. Hamilton the South Philadelphia String Band was born! The mission statement was simple, “A good band was one that featured good people and good musicians, having a good time.” That philosophy still holds true today as it did 70 years ago. The diverse membership is dedicated as ever to uphold the standards set forth by the great men that marched before us.
Happy Birthday to the pride of Grays Ferry!
